“Great green curry”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2013

Recently started Happy hour. Thai food was great especially the new deep fried Somtan with prawns. Chicken green curry and the Khaw Soy noodles are excellent.
Friends have had the British fish and chips with home made chips and raved about them.
Cool jazz often playing makes for a relaxing atmosphere.

“Best food and wine on Soi 4 by far”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013

Sphinx is well managed and strives to provide customers with a better dining experience than can be had elsewhere on Bangkok's lively Silom Soi 4. The wine list far surpasses the other bars, and the food is of a much higher quality. It is less hectic and service is better than in the other restaurants, bars and cafes. If you want elbow to elbow standing room only atmosphere, go elsewhere, but you'd be advised to dine here first.

“A Haven away from the hurly burly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

I visited this restaurant /bar several times in January February & March 2013 and on each occasion enjoyed the atmosphere and opportunity to hide away from the hurly burly of Silom and the vibrancy of Bangkok. The staff were attentive and the food innovative. 'Mine Host' Nat is Thai and charming he speaks fluent English and enjoys entertaining you and gets you to sample the creations from the kitchen and encourages you to try new foods they have inspiringly created.
Nat loves his business and greets everybody making sure they are taken care of. Early evening tends to be quiet and this gives the restaurant an appeal for a long day in Bangkok to enjoy a cool drink and if alone listen to great jazz and easy music or if with company you can easily talk over it.
A definite return on the cards.

“Good food on Soi 4!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013

In an area which is over run by western eateries, sphinx as a comfortable restaurant has lasted for many years. I first ate hear seven years ago and remember the morning glory as my sample of true Thai heat.

This visit I returned with three tough critics, all of whom were pleased with what we received including the interesting deep fried som tum (the accompanying sauce was fantastically hot).

The owner greeted us and did his best to cover for his less than efficient waiters. I think to make this a terrific experience he needs to find some better help.

“Cozy,Comfortable Eating In Soi 4”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013

I've been going to this restaurant for the past few years and have always had good meals and service here. I read some of the previous reviews and disagree with some of the negative comments. It is located at the end of Silom Soi 4 where a lot cheap gay bars are. Silom Soi 4 is always fun. I think it's a nice option for reasonably priced food and good service when you want something to eat in that area. Also, I've never gotten sick from eating there. The menu is large with international cuisine. The bathrooms are clean and well kept. As far as the restaurant being empty, it depends on the season and day of the week.
